At a round-table discussion with President Cyril Ramaphosa in Sandton last week (Thursday, 22 November 2018), Dr Nic Spaull, Senior Researcher in the Department of Economics at Stellenbosch University, spoke about the importance of restoring our malfunctioning primary education system.

He commented that, “Our primary education system is the binding constraint to economic growth and shared prosperity in the long-run."

Dr Spaull was one of 18 economists from academia and industry who were invited by the presidency to give input on "Strategies for long term prosperity: What would it take to place South Africa on a higher-growth trajectory?"
